JOIN an escorted tour of Iceland and Norway to witness nature's most spectacular light show.

Toursgallery has produced a small group 21 day Aurora Borealis Tour commencing on 21 February.

The first half of this journey takes guests from Kirkenes, far north of the Arctic Circle in Norway, then cruises into the fjords on the way south to Bergen and Oslo.

In Iceland the second part of this tour is in a convoy of three super Jeeps.

Local off road expert drivers will take guests to locations in Iceland rarely seen by foreign visitors, but considered to be the best locations for viewing the Aurora Borealis.

At the end of February night time presents roughly eight hours of solid darkness for witnessing this massive curtain of green, white and red light moving across the sky.

Toursgallery director, Ken Osetroff said daylight hours also offer excellent photo opportunities.

"Clear blue sky, sunshine and snow covered mountains are quite normal."

Accommodation, all transportation, all breakfasts and most dinners are included.

Toursgallery's Aurora Borealis Tour is priced at $12,480 and includes flights from Oslo to Kirkenes and from Oslo to Reykjavik.
